Facing a Title IX sexual misconduct allegation can be a highly stressful and emotional experience. It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed, hurt, and scared, especially if someone you were close to and trusted has betrayed you. However, you don’t have to go through this alone. The Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek are here to help you navigate this complicated situation.
Title IX is a federal law designed to eliminate sexual discrimination in the US educational system. Unfortunately, the rules and procedures surrounding it can be complex and subject to change without notice. That’s why it’s crucial to have a professional and experienced Title IX attorney like Todd Spodek by your side.
High schools and universities are obligated to support the accuser, which may result in denying the accused some essential due process rights. With a Title IX attorney, you’ll have someone who understands the law, has experience defending clients, and can use the law’s many provisions to your advantage.
The current guidelines require your school to have a designated Title IX Coordinator, and anyone at your school may report you for sexual misconduct. However, only the Coordinator or the complainant can sign an official complaint against you. If you are being investigated, you have the right to notice of the charges, the name of the complainant, and the right to be presumed “not responsible.” The Coordinator must appoint an Investigator to collect evidence and identify potential witnesses.
It’s important to note that you have the right to defend yourself at a live hearing if you are a college student, where you can introduce evidence and call witnesses. The decision-makers use a legal standard known as “preponderance of evidence” in coming up with their verdict.
Choosing a Title IX advisor is crucial, and local attorneys may not be the best option. Title IX cases involve unique concepts, and Title IX attorneys have the know-how to craft a defense strategy that takes these into account. The Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek can help you find the most knowledgeable and experienced attorney to represent you.
